Stella Maris College holds Comino Chess Tournament
A Chess Tournament was held on the idyllic island of Comino for the third consecutive year, organized by the Stella Maris College on July 16, 2013.
The team was welcomed by the management and placed in a section of the open air restaurant. Also present was Mr Ron Sammut from the Malta Chess Federation, who had the pairings prepared well in advance so that play started literally within minutes of arrival.
Parents and guests who accompanied the students willingly welcomed Ron’s invitation to join in. For the next two and half hours chess board battles raged.
After lunch there was time for swimming and socializing. But even then, students in small groups were still going over their games and arguing on the finer moves which brought in added fortunes and further excitement to the game.
